Seven runs per day will be the initial standard for a total vertical of 4,000 to 5,000m/day! The terrain includes the highest mountain in Kosovo, hard up on the border with North Macedonia, the 2,660m Velika Rudoka.

Very organized. Artan the guide is very friendly guy. The hotel is not big, but very old school and classic. The food is organic coming from the 2200ft cow meat.
The best of this trip were terrains are virgin, no one had touched them before , and very wild mountine. Every day new terrain, we were never bored because everyday we had to ski in new terrain. Also they send us in a night life club one of the days with free beers, or alcoholic drinks and live music. It was fun really. I would suggest the transportation to be quicker. Overall I would recommend. One of the most affordable and fun catskiing I did in Europe.
